The Congress of the United States has enacted the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) to benefit local communities throughout America. Two goals within the Act are: 1) to provide the basis for each community to develop and tailor a chemical emergency planning and response program to suit its individual needs, and 2) to provide the public with the identity, quantity, location and properties of hazardous substances located within each area.
The Indiana State Emergency Response Commission has designated a group in each of Indiana's counties who will carry out these tasks. This group is known as the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), and our function is to serve as the liaison between industry and the community.
